Find out more about Red Light District

Somewhere among the modern architectures and futuristic towns of Singapore, there's one ancient street that has left untouched from tourism redevelopment. Red Light District, the name of the street, or better known as Geylang, is unlike other prime locations and has retained a low profile despite harboring some of the country's most charming religious sites, rows of picturesque old shophouses and historical traditional villages alongside its 19th-century fortifications. The name Geylang originates from a Malay word "kilang", meaning "factory", corresponding to its history as an industrial area. The neighbourhood also constitutes the settlement of Singapore's oldest Malay community, Geylang Serai.

 

Where to go in Red Light District

The district's combination of ancient shophouse scenery nestled harmoniously between multi-cultural sites of mosaic temples, mosques and churches is truly fascinating to the eyes. One of the most visible characteristics of Geylang architecture is the preservation of its shophouses, currently used by respective clan associations as a centre, each with a distinct cultural identity. Here are some of the best places to visit in Red Light District:

 

Wisma Geylang Serai: Formerly a Malay Village, the Geylang Serai Community Club was built to replace its predecessor, as a new Malay-Muslim social, cultural and heritage community hub to preserve Geylang Serai's rich Malay heritage of the area. Its large compound comprises a stunning Malay Heritage Gallery for an eye opening experience in learning about the Malay culture, and participate in both traditional and modern Malay arts and performance at the Arts studios.

 

Geylang Serai Wet Market: Walk across the pedestrian pathways and bridges from Wisma Geylang Serai, to arrive at the busiest and largest wet market in Singapore. Have fun exploring all 3 sections of the market; Food, Dry & Wet for an all-in-one experience of what makes Singapore, Singapore. Satisfy growling tummy at the Food section for the best local Malay and Indian cuisines. For some grocery shopping, head to the Dry section for a wide selection of aromatic spices, premium herbs and health tonics, and even highly affordable fashion merchandises. Whereas the Wet Market offers the freshest produce and catch from both land and sea.

 

Joo Chiat Complex: Shop til you drop at this quaint old mall for beautiful Malay textiles fabrics, traditional crafts and dazzling jewellery as souvenirs. The complex is flourished with flattering traditional Peranakan kebaya costumes (Nonya-style blouses with decorative lace), as well as myriad of Malay and Indonesian eateries. Be sure to visit the complex during the Muslim Ramadhan season as it becomes exceptionally vibrant during this fasting month with colourful decorations, exquisite household ornaments and unique local label apparels, shoes and accessories.

 

What to eat in Red Light District

Aside to the old shophouses lining Geylang Road, the district is also famed for its durian shops. Tantalise your tastebuds downright with super affordable yet delicious food and drinks at the Geylang Serai Wet Market for Muslim & Indian eateries. Spot for stalls with exceptionally long queues as those are renowned for its Nasi Padang (steamed rice with Malay-Indonesian side dishes), Biryani Rice (long rice mixed with spices, meat and vegetables) and healthy desserts like Cheng Tng and Cendol. The market also serves rare traditional food such as the Bubur Kampung (porridge topped with vegetables, century eggs, anchovies, peanuts and shredded salted fish), Laksa Chap (springy noodles in rich coconut extracts and herbs broth) and Kacang Phool (mashed broad beans with semi-fried egg topped with chilli, onions and bread)
